ESAU MWAMWAYA: Biography, Pictures, Discography, Videos



Esau Mwamwaya is a Malawian musician who sings traditional music and a melange of pop and reggae. Esau Mwamwaya was born in Mzuzu (Northern Malawi) but was raised in the Malawian capital, Lilongwe. While growing up he learned to play several musical instruments with different "garage bands." One of his close friends was the Malawian reggae legend; Evison Matafale (Who created the Black Missionaries, the famous group before his death in 2001) When he moved to London, England (in 99), Mwamwaya was not preoccupied with music until by coincidence he met the duo band and djs known as Radioclit (The swede Johan Karlberg and Etienne Tron, the French). From then, the trio composed songs that are acclaimed by many critics.

They have finished a project entitled "The Very Best" which is a mixtape. It contains Esau's Mwamwaya's compositions with the musical arrangements of the Radioclit duo. Some of the songs included are Tengazako, Boyz(with Mia and Akon) and Cape Code's Kwasakwasa, Kamphopho, Wena (In Zulu and Xhosa and Chichewa), Get it up (feat Mia), Funa Funa and others.
Esau Mwamwaya and Radioclit mainly sing in Chichewa and Tumbuka.
